Take a look at what John Oliver had to say about NC and other southern states last night:
Ballotproof (The Daily Show)
It pains me to see my home state making the news for all of the wrong reasons lately. While I voted for the new governor based on his performance as mayor of Charlotte, he has turned into quite the partisan monster since taking power. Gone are the days of bi-partisanship in this state. We are becoming more and more an extension of our southern half.
It’s clear from that data that the good people of this state are not being represented fairly. While I am no bleeding heart liberal, I am 100% against corruption and political power grabs. The war on education and civil rights taking place in NC is disgusting, but perhaps all of this media coverage will help level the scales during the next election.
